Re: When should I see progress from new queen?
Starting about 3 wks from the time you gave them the brood............. You shouldn't be meddling with them except for 1 check about 5 days after you gave them the brood to see if they started cells. Each time you inspect while cells are being made or finished and waiting to hatch you risk injuring them. If after 4 wks of placing the brood in you dont see eggs you may have problems. Give them another brood frame with eggs and larva. If they don't make cells again they have a queen or soon to be laying workers.
